Had a much-overdue dental appointment this morning for a check up and clean. Happy to report all is "pristine" apparently!
Celebrated over at lee&me - gotta refresh the coffee stains that my dentist just meticulously cleaned off my teeth 😂
Poor girl has to be content with a chew toy for now haha
Honestly though, she's very laid back - give her some pots and spoons to play percussion, and she's gold - helping me bake hahaha
How cold is it?! Readers here will know all too well, I've always been a big fan of winter, and look forward to this time of year above all others. Loving breaking out the winter woolies and my favorite repertoire of warming soups. Not so enamoured with the rain - usually I love nothing better than sitting inside in the warmth while it pours down outside - but this year I have a little ankle biter in tow who adores being out and about in the fresh air, watching the trees, eating grass (as you do). Not quite sure how to reconcile a rainy winter with having a very mobile toddler! We are already pondering this dilemma in my mothers group - all our favorite haunts to date have involved the great outdoors! Some serious brainstorming of wet weather venues is required...
So excited to *finally* be back to reading again! Back to my old bookworm self. Now that my brain is a little more rested and I can concentrate, plus I have the time for it! I've been re-reading the Obernewtyn series in anticipation of the release of the final book - and I picked up this little gem at the weekend. Loved the movie so much I have been wanting to read it! Will do a review once I'm done.
Can I confess to you guys that I have already started writing a packing list for Evie for Saturday's wedding, plus some instructions for my poor parents (alright, they requested them, but I'm having to physically restrain myself from going overboard and writing a list of Tolstoy-esque proportions!) I'm not so much worried about how she will cope, she's a cruisy kiddo - I'm more worried about how my parents will cope hahaha I shouldn't say that, we've never had any issues - but she has also never spent a full day/night with anyone other than V and I! Eeek! Best to start them young though - and I'm sure it's going to be the first of many fun sleepovers with her grandparents.
How young was your kid the first time they spent the day or night away from you? How did they cope? Or more to the point, how did YOU cope?
